I swear I had decided to post on Eagles QB Kevin Kolb this morning before I bought today’s edition of the Philadelphia Daily News…
Les Bowen beat me to the punch…
He has Kolb – as has been rumored for many months now – headed to Arizona. In his scenario, a deal with the desert would include Cardinals cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
There might be one key holdup to such a transaction taking place as he rightly notes…the fact DRC is a proven commodity…and Kevin is not.
I think I speak for a number of Philadelphians who would like to see Kolb stay right where he is. With the way Michael Vick relentlessly throws himself around the field, Kevin provides security. Do you think Michael will play every down this year?
I didn’t think so.
I also think I speak for a number of Philadelphians who have curious fascination with the alleged high interest in Kolb. Ultimately, I think the urgent interest only lies in Arizona…whose woes since Kurt Warner went “dancing with the stars” are well-documented.
Kevin simply hasn’t been on the field that much in his brief career. It speaks towards the state of quarterbacking in the NFL he’s considered such a worthy investment. As someone who has seen each of his games, I suggest any suitor consider such an investment…a project. Time will tell.
I believe Eagles fans would like to see that project carried out – as Philadelphia makes a serious run for the Super Bowl this season – in Philadelphia.
